What is Mediation?

Mediation is an alternative method for resolving disputes. So much so, that the courts in the UK actively encourage parties to participate in Mediation before litigation.

The concept is simple, two (or more) people have a dispute, a mediator then becomes involved and assists everyone in resolving the dispute. The great thing about mediation is that it can be done with or without the need for legal representation.

 

Why not go to court?

Going to Court is expensive, time consuming and most cases are public hearings.

At court a Judge will listen to the arguments and impose a decision on you, whether you agree with it or not. Mediation makes you the Judge. You can come to a solution in the comfort of your own environment, without pressure.

Mediation meetings are also confidential; no one outside the mediation will know what has happened, meaning you can be as open and honest as you like.

One of the most advantageous aspects of mediation is its speed. Meetings can take place anytime and anywhere. DCMediation offers an express service so we can have a mediator with you within 24 hours!!!
